Rural History Center Presents an on-line bibliography of British and Irish rural history. The Rural History Database, containing over 40,000 records, covers the period prehistory to the recent past and mainly consists of journal articles. Many date from the late 18th and 19th centuries. The majority of articles in the Database were published in the leading journals from the 1940s up to the present year. The database also contains over 5,000 theses awarded degrees world-wide since the 1870s, including contemporary surveys which are now of historical interest. There are also 7,000 books in the database, most of which are held by the Rural History Centre's library, and articles from edited works. References have been trawled from published bibliographies, footnotes, and over 1500 journals. The field covered by the Bibliography relates to man's interaction with the environment both during and since prehistoric times, and to rural social and economic history. Information on the processing of the produce of the land, even in an urban environment is also collected.
